Chitabe Lediba is a lovely camp that provides primarily a game-viewing experience similar to drier parts of the country. Unless clients have already travelled to Okavango and have experienced the wet camps, we don’t recommend Chitabe as a stand-alone Delta camp. However, there’s no denying that Chitabe is arguably one of the finest game-viewing camps in the entire Okavango Delta!
ACCESS & LOCATION:
Chitabe Lediba is located in the South east of the Okavango Delta and is only twenty minutes flight from the town of Maun, the gateway to Okavango Delta. This, together with Chitabe’s status as a dry reserve, means that it isn’t a typical Okavango encounter.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES:
Chitabe Lediba is built on the edge of a small island (not always surrounded by water) and centered around a main dining, lounge and pool area. Guest can relax in the sun or shade and enjoy the deep plunge pool looking out over the reserve. Five luxury tented units are laid out around the main area and connected by wooden walkways with the main area. The rooms are to a very good standard with outside viewing area, luxury furnishings, inside and outside shower and separate bathroom. The rooms give a very good feeling of being right in the middle of the reserve yet behind the comfort of a proper door, which can have great appeal as lion and elephant frequently come through camp.
The Chitabe Reserve is one of the Delta’s drier areas and is virtually surrounded by the game rich Moremi Game Reserve. The camp is especially well known for its diversity of game including rare specialities such as aardwolf and caracal. Leopard are also very common. We tend to suggest that Chitabe be booked in conjunction with another water-based camp, such as Little Vumbura, Little Kwara, Kwara, Jacana, Kwetsani or Jao.
